Propulsion
  • 1st 8 units with conventional propulsion
  • 2nd 8 units with nuclear propulsion aircraft carrier group

    Most definitely not nuclear. Just look at the history of nuclear powered surface combatants that aren't aircraft carriers. It's littered with early retirements and high cost.
  • 4 x QC185s/LM2500 equivalents will be perfect for a 12,000 ton ship.

  • One 155 mm gun that will later be replaced by an electromagnetic or laser gun
    doubtful. the new 130mm gun is just that, new, and it is not clear why the PLAN would see the necessity of a 155mm gun so quickly after introduction of PJ38, especially considering it should already be capable of firing precision guided and extended range munitions to offer fire support.
